If we can’t book ourselves a cruise holiday, we’re bringing the cruise into our makeup bags instead with this irrepressibly cheery Summer makeup collection from Laneige. The nautical theme is evident here, with the iconic red and blue stripes covering the packaging on the body cushion, eyeshadow palette and nail polishes that make up the range, as well as with the beach-ready hues the eye and nail colours come in.

First things first, yes, that’s a cushion for your body. We’ve freaked out over it before, but to reiterate, if you can’t live without your Laneige BB Cushion, you need to try the Sparkling Body Cushion for the rest of your body. It’s not meant to conceal so much as highlight, with rose gold pearlescent particles that you can pat onto areas such as your shoulders, chest and arms. The inclusion of sparkling water and aloe in the ingredients list means the formula helps soothe and cool down the skin upon application, making this perfect for packing along in your beach bag.






We’re also getting starry-eyed over the Marine Girl Boy Eyeshadow Palette, which features six shimmery pastel and metallic hues that promise high colour payoff. They’ll allow you to transit easily from a day to night look – it’s just a matter of layering up on the shimmer on the outer corners of the lids for something more glamorous.






And since we all can’t resist new nail colours, especially when they come in packaging as cute as this, we’re stoked that the Marine Nail Kit includes four nautical shades – royal red, marine blue, white and light blue – plus a handy stencil and decorative stickers to nail the perfect nautical-themed manicure. Ships ahoy!
